Week of May 13, 2019

A Message from Principal Grey:

Dear Grant Community,

We are so proud of our 5th and 6th graders! They have shown dedication, commitment, and grit in preparing for the West Side Relays and did a fantastic job today. Thank you to our coaches: Leslie Ihrig, Jean Groh, Jen Friesen, Patti Kowta and Kathryn O'Niell for all of your support and organization and thank you to all who came out to volunteer to support our kids throughout their training and today at PHS!

Here is some footage of them coming through their tunnel on their way to compete!

This year was a great introduction to the West Side Relays for newbie :-)

Ms. Grey

Spring Book Fair, 5/20-24

Stock up on some great selections for summer reading! Keep the kids interested in books and help them grow their reading skills over the break. Every book purchased helps raise money for Grant! You can also check out the online book fair and/or sign up to help Mrs. Crysdale (she needs you!) here:
